The Heritage Sector in Your Area – CBA National survey

Conservation Events we asked two key questions: what the heritage sector looks like in your area (i.e. which organisations, communities and places should Historic England know about), and where do you think Historic England should prioritise spending to best benefit people.


Thank you to everyone who answered those questions in the follow up survey. If you could not attend these events or have not yet responded we would be grateful if you could answer these questions via a short survey link:


Your assistance will help us better understand the heritage sector across the North East and Yorkshire, so we can target our grant aid and staff time in a way that brings the greatest benefit to people in the region.


Alternatively please feel free to contact us directly now or at any later point with ideas and suggestions.



Free heritage webinars


Historic England’s webinars are free to register for and provide an interactive and immersive live online learning experience on a variety of topics relevant to the heritage sector.


Our latest industrial heritage webinar takes place this Thursday 21 January and will look at the identification, assessment and recording of industrial heritage sites (landscapes, standing structures/buildings, archaeological remains) through the planning process in England, as well as considering potential public benefits arising from such work.

Call for Evidence: Current Understanding of Heritage Threats and Future Opportunities


Our Environmental Strategy Team is interested in hearing from the sector regarding threats to the historic environment as well as potential future opportunities.


We wish to understand from the sector how threats are being identified, current action taken against threat, main areas of future concern, and key priorities in addressing and responding to threat. This Call for Evidence will help shape our understanding of heritage at risk from a broad range of threats, including climate change, and its relationship with social, economic and environmental considerations.
